  1. I have no idea who the artist is.
  2. I like it and it's a very nice clean build.
  3. What kind of bike is that you're riding one?
  4. I haven't heard of 9point8. I don't use a dropper post either. That's cool that you work for a bike accessory manufacturer.
  5. That's a great shot. I bet you have some great technical terrains in the Great White North. I live in GA. We have some great bike parks here. Your choice from beginner to advanced to flow to technical trails. I originally started MTB riding in 2000 on the old SuperV, I bought it new back then. That bike was way advanced for me but I'm an engineer and a techy kind of guy and had to have FS with hydraulic discs. But I never got to be too good of a rider because it wasn't long after that I got laid off my job. So new jobs mean relocating. So I did some riding again when I lived in south FL, that was in 2005. But that trail wasn't too bad. It had intermediate on it and some of it was just like a dirt road. Well, more layoff and relocating a few more times and I eventually wound up back where I was when I bought the bike in Marietta, GA. That was in 2011. But I still really didn't resume riding. The trail I originally started on in 2000 was a rather intimidating trail and I was quite "green" at it. But after I moved in with my girlfriend I found out about a local trail and decided to go at it again. That was in the spring of 2014. It turned out to be a nice technical rooty, rocky trail. The beginner section was more like intermediate compared to other beginner trails I've seen. So I rode the bike every weekend and got more skillful and more confident. In Oct 2014 I cracked the rear swing arm on the old bike. (The black one in the photo is a replacement). Cannondale couldn't fix it due to the fact they don't make an 26ers and more but there is a lifetime frame warranty so I got 40% off on that Scalpel 29. Then a few months later over the winter I fixed the old bike. So I've done about 550 miles of riding since I got the new Scalpel. Plus I've hit a few other trails too.
  6. Excellent build and that shop display is great!
  7. Really nice build. I like those right angle boots on the distributor.
  8. WOW! That is one fantastic build. It sure goes against the grain with that turbo 4 banger in it too.
  9. Really nice job. I like the way did the washer bottle too.
  10. That's nice. I think that's known as the Avalon in the U.S.
  11. I like it. Cool old racer.
  12. Really cool car and a nice display.
  13. I used a PE set on this. You should see how the brake rotors assemble. I've included some WIP shots. WIP first: Finished model:
  14. Looks really cool. I used to see those cars all around when I was growing up on L.I.
  15. I once had a call that spoofed my own number in the caller ID. I didn't answer it. What were they trying to do, make it look like I was calling myself? Anyway, Social Security would never call you up. The would notify you in the mail.
  16. Thanks for that tip. I was thinking of using the wire wheels. I certainly check that out.
